A Welcome from Our Director
Welcome to the K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics!
Our mission is to collect and interpret sounds in nature by developing and applying innovative conservation technologies across ecologically relevant scales to inspire and inform the conservation of wildlife and habitats.
Our groundbreaking work in conservation bioacoustics is made possible by a transformative gift from philanthropist K. Lisa Yang, whose generosity enables us to innovate technologies and solutions for on-the-ground researchers and communities working to conserve wildlife around the world.
Justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion are core values that guide our research, conservation, capacity building, and public engagement efforts everywhere that we work.
Our highly interdisciplinary team of scientists, educators, engineers, students, and research support personnel is working with many national and international collaborators on a wide variety of terrestrial, aquatic, and marine bioacoustic research projects tackling conservation issues worldwide.
